Assault and battery: Things you need to know

Assault and battery are among the most serious crimes, as a conviction could change your life forever. There are many things you need to know about assault and battery, including the fact that both of these can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor.

Here's something you need to know: A person can be convicted of assault even if the victim was not physically harmed. As long as the victim can prove that there was an attempt to cause injury, a conviction can be the end result. This alone can make your situation a bit more challenging.

Some of the most common assault and battery charges include:

  • First-degree assault
  • Second-degree assault
  • Assault with intent to murder
  • Aggravated assault
  • Assault with a firearm
  • Domestic violence
  • Assault related to another type of crime, such as theft
